|The Visayas Island Group includes the following 3 Regions & 16* Provinces:
*NOTE: Palawan was moved from Region IV-B to Region VI on May 23, 2005, by Executive Order 429. However, there was much criticizm from Palaweños, who did not like the move. On August 19, 2005, Administrative Order No. 129 put a hold on the move, until an implementation plan for orderly transfer could be approved. As a result, there is some confusion on which region Palawan really belongs to. We have included Palawan on our Luzon page, but the map below includes Palawan in Region VI.
